    I chose to open with that quote from Dogma because this series and that movie were both written by Kevin Smith, yet the villain doesn't take Smith's advice, which may be intentional – Hull is a Bond villain of sorts, so it works. Here in issue 8, we're really in the thick of things – the second act of the story arc is in full swing. The dialogue and story are cliche, but it works and the pacing is nice – given the amount of text, it could be heavy handed, but it's fun. I wouldn't call this a memorable chapter in the pantheon of comics, but it gets the job done. Read Full Review

    So, what happens you ask? Colonel Austin finds himself on an extreme prejudice mission, and while there he is kidnapped by a man who wants to run a world full of cyborgs. This is where Phil Hester and Kevin Smith really shine. They give Colonel Austin the "arch enemy" that he really needed as a character to be elevated to the next level. Bionic Man #8 is a great read from start to finish, a little over the top, but that is done completely on purpose. So, enjoy the rather straight forward super hero, stealth fighter story that is Bionic Man #8. Read Full Review
